What's the quickest way to grow a YouTube channel or Twitch.tv stream? There's a two-part answer: First, be consistent and predictable in uploads. Second, stick to relevant, high-quality content. The “relevance” bit is key, and this article explains why.
Dozens of high-profile games are announced or ship each year. To be one of the first streamers of a new game – alpha, beta, or freshly launched – is an instant assurance of fairly high visibility. The earlier you start creating content around a to-be smash-hit game, the more exposure (by sheer absence of volume) you'll have to the community. This also helps establish your content early in the game's launch cycle, so that it may be discovered later through search engine queries.
